Oddly enough my first inclination was to use magick for self help because what's the point of manifesting shit if I'm too messed in the head to actually enjoy it for example..... lol.

I'm definitely excited to read this.

I recently bought this book on amazon as it was in my recommendations and it looked interesting.

It's a short and simple read with some useful information in it.

Name of the wind - Patrick Rothfus  :)

Loved this book and the second as well. The third is on hiatus... I'm not happy about it.

I just received a copy of Esoteric Mind Power by Vernon Howard, and am enjoying it thus far.

Definitely recommend checking it out.

Been reading Magic and the Western Mind by Gareth Knight the past week or so, and have also started The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P.  Hall.   Both are very interesting so far.

Got this book by "chance" and even though I'm very hesitant of going into book series without reading the first books, this one is just great. I've laughed out loud quite a few times already, only halfway in. Knowledge in this one too. It had a part about why books are placed into copper plates.. forgot already

Someone read the dragonlance books theyre like 200 pages and relate directly to the old gods, what happened and what is happening.
If there is any hope, it must lie in the proles..but why the proles, How are they most free to act?

I'll start reading them and take notes while reading them ASAP. I'll post my notes on each novel here as I finish them.

Damn, 170 novels... Been a long time since I read any fantasy/sword and sorcery books. But your recommendations have yet failed to amuse me, so I'll trust you and do my best to get through them all. Beginning to read the Abramelin book postponed again.

I just finished "Nothing in this Book Is True, But it's Exactly How Things Are" that NRG recommended.  Quite a fascinating read!

A friend recommended this one to me, so I just started this one this week.
Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field
https://www.amazon.com/Hands-Light-Healing-Through-Energy/dp/0553345397/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1507595026&sr=8-1&keywords=hands+of+light

I am reading the Harry Potter series with my child at bedtime.  This series is NOT my favorite, but it is amazing how many connections I see now...

I found an old copy of H.G. Wells "The Time Machine" hiding in the back of our bookcase.
That will be on my list to read next week.

In my searches online, I also came across this old H.G. Wells book, which sounds MORE interesting than the Time Machine:

The "Crux Ansata  An Indictment of the Roman Catholic Church"

Quote
"H. G. Wells, living in London under the regular bombings from across the English Channel, extensively attacks Pope Pius XII and Roman Catholicism, beginning his polemic with "Why do we not bomb Rome?"

That cross with a loop on top sure is an interesting picture...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crux_Ansata
Not all who wander are lost....

Here is my first notes for the introduction of Dragonlance Autumn Flame

Dragonlance Chronicles - Dragons of Autumn Twilight - Notes

(notes to introduction)
There were three moons in ‘the first blush of the world’
Terrible dragons made war on this world.
Out of the darkness a knight of truth called down the gods and drove out the dragons.
He was named Huma. Lightbringer. Called down ‘Lancemakers’ to get the power needed to crush evil.

Good God = Paladine. Helped Huma.
Huma banished queen of dark back to kingdom of death.
All this ended the age of dreams(aboriginal dreamtime??)
And began the age of might.

Istar, kingdom of light in the easte(Ishtar?)
The kingpriest started seeng shadows.
Researched Huma from earlier times,
to learn his magic to summon gods
to purge the world of these shadows.

Then time of darkness as the gods turned from the world.
A mountain of fire split Istar.
Mountains burst from valleys.
Seas poured in.

Then age of despair.
Plains and mountains became our home.
Old gods lost their power.

I've read quite a few 'Discworld' books. Lot's of smiles there.
Another series I found very interesting is the 'Dresden Files'. Stories about a Wizard/Detective solving 'paranormal'
crimes for the police and private citizen. Some of it is a bit tongue in cheek but some gets really hairy. I did a bit of research before posting this and was delighted to find several of the earlier books in entirety on youtube.
